Hey Jim, I‘ve been a guitar player for about 40 years and just picking up the banjo at 55 years old. Just got through your lesson 1 and appreciate the work you put into it. You seem like a really cool guy too!

I'm a rank beginner (restarting after 10 yr hiatus & age 59) & I dont know much about much but I know you're a great guy to do this for the advancement of our common cause! Pick on! I'm gonna hafta bear down on my practices to absorb all the offerings! Thank you good Sir!

I got your PM this morning and e-mailed Eric Schlange.  If you e-mailed eric slange, that's probably why you got no response.

You need to post your problem in the website problems and questions forum.  I can't move your post to that forum, so you'll have to post a new  one on the correct forum.

Just chiming in here to say that this is exactly what I'm looking for.

As a novice, a lot of banjo parts can sound intimidating. Backing up is a great place to start learning how to find a pocket and build confidence.

Hi Jim I am a 64 year old man with no musical interests.

After coming across your videos I have this week bought my first banjo it is a Barnes and Mullins Empress banjo and I am using your videos to help me play

So thank you Jim for giving a complete new interest especially after the year we have had I need this.

Kind regards Steve

Jim is seriously the best teacher! I absolutely started with no knowledge of the banjo but wanted to play a song so badly. Jim's Bluegrass Lessons are great. It took me about 2 months (daily to every other day practice) to FINALLY get through Cripple Creek. I finally played it for my hubbs yesterday and he said that he recognized the tune!! Now, to finesse the song! :)
